Do you already speak a little bit of Spanish and would you like to continue learning this beautiful language? With this Spanish beginners course at the University of Groningen Language Centre, you will learn about the Spanish language and culture at a high pace. We offer Spanish courses both on location in Groningen and online. Our teaching method for the Spanish beginners course focuses on speaking and understanding the Spanish language. With this method, you will quickly feel at home in this beautiful language and you will automatically expand your grammar knowledge and vocabulary.
Who is this course for?

This course is for beginners of Spanish at CEFR level A1. During the course, we work towards CEFR level A2. The course is taught in Spanish as much as possible, with explanations provided in Dutch or English depending on the group participants. It is therefore important that you have a good command of English in order to participate in the course.

If you are unsure whether this level is right for you, you can test yourself online using the placement test! Alternatively, make an appointment for the online consultation to get personal advice from our teacher.

What will you learn in this course?

The course comprises 12 lessons. One lesson lasts 2 hours in a course on location and 1.5 hours in an online course. During the course, you will learn, among other things:

  • How to use the verb saber
  • More vocabulary
  • To make comparisons and to point out similarities and differences
  • The past tenses: pretérito perfecto, indefinido, and imperfecto
  • The imperative and simple present
How many hours of independent study are required?

To properly keep up with the course, you will have to take into account a total of 30 hours of self-study for this course on location, or 36 hours of self-study for the online course. Self-study mainly comprises grammar exercises, vocabulary development, and listening exercises. You will also be asked to do a reading or writing exercise every now and again.

What will you be able to do after the course?
  • Give your opinion
  • Talk about your plans for the future
  • Hold a conversation about the weather
  • Ask for information or make a reservation
  • Describe your house and its interior

After successfully completing this course, you will be ready for the Spanish A2>A2/B1 follow-up course. You could also do the conversational Spanish A2 and B1 course which fully focuses on speaking.

Course material

During this course, we use the following materials. You will need to purchase these materials yourself:

It is important that you buy this version of the book including access to Campus Difusión, as this is where the homework assignments are given.

Rosetta Stone

A Rosetta Stone independent study account is a great tool to use alongside the course. You can also use it to keep working on your language skills even after the course has finished. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for the course and will not be used by the teacher, but it can give your language learning an extra boost!
